Why use a funeral photographer?
In my experience families have looked upon a loved one’s passing as a celebration of their life; of bringing and remembering all of the stories and physical possessions together in one place on one day to share with family and friends at that celebration. Photography can be used to capture that celebration and preserve those personal details, as well as serve as a positive healing process in the days, months and years ahead.
The professional funeral photography services I offer are bespoke, built entirely around the wishes of the individuals and family, and are performed with discretion, respect and confidence. I have experience of photographing multiple funerals, and any photography services start with a meeting to discuss the approach that the family and individuals would like.
Special memories away from the day
As well as elements of the day, of the processions and the service, funeral photography can provide an alternative, lasting memorial by capturing a special place or monument that is completely away from the service itself. It may be capturing a place of particular significance at a special time of day or point of the year. Funeral photography could also include gathering personal photographs, collecting farewell messages and photographing personal memorabilia to make into a special book or memorial.
About photographer Andy Wade
I am a professional photographer living in Todmorden, on the border of Lancashire and West Yorkshire. Originally from London, I moved to Bradford to study for my photography degree. As well as the multicultural aspect of Bradford, I wanted to locate in the middle of the UK so I could easily get to England, Scotland, Ireland and Wales. After gaining my first class honours in photography I worked for Orange and EE as a photo content editor, before starting my own photography business, specialising in many genres of portrait photography.
